Siraj improved his bowling

Indian skipper Rohit Sharma praised Siraj for his focus and dedication towards the game while also appriciating the latter’s hard work to improve his bowling.

”Over the last couple of years, we have seen how well Siraj has fared across all three formats. He has improved his bowling; his line and length have improved. He has especially worked on his outswing,” Rohit Sharma said at post match conference.

Sharma said that Siraj was not that renowned for swing, but he has shown his ability to swing with the new ball over the last series.

”It is not an easy task for any batsman to face the new ball. Siraj has started understanding his bowling and what the team wants from him. Overall he has become a very good bowler for the team, one who can take wickets with the new ball and in the middle overs. He has also improved his death bowling with the IPL,” Rohit added.

”We have to keep in mind that we manage him well, and keep him fresh till the World Cup and for the four Tests against Australia,” Rohit concluded.

The @mdsirajofficial effect!
